a fringe belief in america. >> has there been any shift in attitudes that is, do more americans believe in a biblical explanation rather than just global warming, something that we can fix? do they think it a biblical explanation? >> we asked this question separately because they told us whether it was a result of climate change and a result of the end times and we did see that six in ten americans say that it's a result of climate change. so we have most americans on that side. again, the significant minority here and the real question is how much does it matter in term of what government action wants to do and it turns out that it matters. the perception of the facts matters the most. so those who don't believe that storms are getting more severe, just the fact of that are twice as likely to say that the government should do more to address climate change but among those who say that it's a sign of the end times, they are evenly divided on whether or not the government should do something to address this compared to more than two-thirds of those who say it's not a sign of the end time
